Notes ABOUT COST

 

  • Tuition rates are for 12 to 17 undergraduate credits.
  • *Per university policy, Temple students who are considered “upper division” are charged an additional $300 tuition per semester. “Upper division” is defined as an undergraduate student with a minimum of 60 earned credits, regardless of how obtained. This policy does not affect non-Temple students.
  • The housing charge includes housing for the duration of the program in accommodations arranged by the university.
  • Students in the Architecture program will be assessed a course fee, estimated at $600.
  • Some courses, such as courses in art, art history and communications, carry media fees which range from approximately $60-$175 per course. Students pay these fees in Japan.
  • Students should budget additional funds for art/video equipment, additional health insurance, and any extensive travel outside Tokyo they plan to undertake.

 

Deposits, Payment Policies and Financial aid


Program and Housing Deposits

Upon acceptance to the TUJ study abroad program, a $200 non-refundable program deposit will be due within two weeks to confirm your participation. If you choose Temple-arranged housing, a $200 non-refundable housing deposit will be required by the deadline set for your semester. Both deposits will be credited to your account.

Temple University invoices students for all remaining program charges, at which point final payment must be made. Financial aid vouchers and/or award letters are the only exceptions to this policy. Students who have been awarded financial aid must present evidence of such awards according to the procedure outlined in the Financial Aid Section of our web site.

More information and all payment due dates appear in the pre-departure information provided to students after acceptance.

Scholarships

 

Education Abroad Scholarships
Scholarships for Temple students range from $1,000 to $2,500 and are awarded on the basis of academic merit and financial need. To be eligible for a scholarship, a student must be enrolled as a full-time, matriculated student at Temple University at the time of application; have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0; enroll as a full-time student at TUJ; receive need-based financial aid; and be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.


A limited number of $1,000 scholarships are available to qualified non-Temple students. To be eligible for a scholarship, a student must be enrolled as a full-time, matriculated undergraduate at the time of application; have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0; enroll as a full-time student at TUJ; receive need-based financial aid; and be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. Preference for the scholarship is given to students attending non-PA state institutions in their state of permanent residence.
